Ughh!!!!! Need advice on new plants!

Okay soo I finally got some of my plants from Sweetaquatics. They didn't send me my Dwarf Sagittaria. Instead I got a note saying they were unable to ship it and will refund my money.

I did get my pennywort

Will this sad plant make it?

I also got my crypt undulata
Attachment 37852
I put a root tab under this plant. What else can I do to help it? Most of the leaves were broken on it and I trimmed it up a little.
I will NEVER again order from that place!
Please any advice as what I can do to help these plants make it.

Well, I have never ordered plants online, but given more than one recent thread about SA, and now seeing these, I would not be happy if I received plants in this state.

I recently sent some plants via mail to brownmane and ladayen, including some Pennywort, and what I sent was in far better shape than what is pictured here.

At the very least, ensure they know.

Byron do you think the pennywort will recover? Or do I need to just throw it away?
As for the crypt. Its small but I think it will recover. You thoughts on this?
I definitely plan on contacting them about this issue!

I would think the crypt should recover. The pennywort might, keep it floating and see. I can't believe any supplier sending something like this pennywort and charging for it.

Boredomb 09-21-2011 04:55 PM

I was thinking the pennywort had the best chance of recovering by floating so thanks on that.
I am dumbfounded that I got this!! I really don't know what to say other then I won't be a returning customer, I didn't get half the order I was suppose to get (I just now realized that I ordered a java fern and I didn't get that or a refund on it) and what I did well you see the pic.

Did you pay by credit card or paypal you should be able to get a refund if the plant place wont refund your money.

Then you can get a refund. You just have to contact them.

I'll vouch for Byron. His plants travelled from BC to Ontario Canada (more than half the distance across Canada) in a couple of days and were in great shape :-)
